Seremban Siew-Pao: Seremban Siew-Pao
This is Seremban Siew-Pao, each cost RM1.10, eat with hand only, or even better to eat with ice beer or hot Chinese tea. I am not sure whether this is halal food, but anyway, there are KFC, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, 7-Eleven, etc and Vegetarian restaurants too, I especially like the restaurant of Sri Lanka, the Thosai of Ghee Massala and Tea Ceylon, etc, two person's dinner cost Rm12. This vegetarian restaurant is located opposite the people's square, name is VB. I was searching for a restaurant to watch live telecast football match between Chelsea and Manutd so ended up here, I think mostly Indians not interested in watching football in restaurant in Seremban, they have a TV but they watch other channels, anyway the result was Chelsea 3:0 MU, EPL Champion retained.

Uncle Fatty Restaurant & Cafe: For Big Eater
You could barely see what's inside from the tinted glass doors and panels of this shop. I tried my luck anyway. It is located a few shops from the hotel that I just check-out from and it was raining!
The ambiance was nice. The place was clean. The waitresses were attentive.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the stewed curry chicken noodle. It is basically instant noodle drenched in thick curry. The curry was good but the chicken was tough - I think it has been refried (re:leftovers). It would be better if they had used fresh chicken.
I couldn't finish the whole plate as the portion if quite big, fit for Uncle Fatty but not for me....
On the positive note - The fresh juices here are excellent!

Station Kopitiam: Mind Boggling Variety
Great place to sample local food. The variety of food that they offer are simply mind-boggling! Just pick your favourite from the colourful menu.
Clean place. Great ambiance. Speedy service. Friendly waiters.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the combo set, consist of Chicken fried with Petai (a local "stinky" bean), rice, clear soup, ice lemon tea and mango pudding.
The wholesome meal cost less than RM 10 (USD2.70). Great value for money! It was tasty too!

Stall 748: Seremban Best Beef Noodle
It is located at the first floor of Pasar Besar Seremban. (Above the wet market). There are many stalls there but look for Stall no. 748 - it is highlighted in The Star Guide to Malaysian Street Food. Quite easy to locate - just follow the number sequence on the stall signages.
Favorite Dish: There are two versions of the beef noodle - soup and dry. I tried the soup version. Lovely. The soup tasted great with its beefy goodness. The beef - tender and juicy. The noodles - very smooth and not too springy. The "kiam chai" (pickle veggie) add some extra zing to the soup.

Restoran Al Mustaffa: The best Malay Restaurant
This is what we call a "Mamak" shop - owned and operated by Indian Muslims.
Mamak shops are popular with the locals because they offer cheap food.
The standard of food at this place has improved dramatically since first writing this tip. Now, it's hard to get a seat between 12.30 and 1.30.
They have also made improvements to the decor. It claims to be the cleanest Mamak shop in Seremban which isn't a real big claim but, it IS clean. They clean the toilets every hour which is a really unusual thing here and puts it up with KFC (who?) on that score.
The food is predominently Malay cuisine but heavilly influenced by Indian traditional cooking.
The food can vary from mild to "bloody hot" so you must check with the waiter before ordering.
Typically, you serve yourself mutton, beef or chicken with your selection of vegetables.
If it's too spicy for you, buy a hot drink like teh tarik ("pulled tea" in english) which will sooth the spicy palate quickly.
This sort of food is best eaten with the right hand but many Chinese and foreigners prefer to use spoon and fork.
Favorite Dish: If you can eat a whole "Murtabak" (US$1.25) on your own, you are better than me.
A Roti Telur (egg bread) with a small piece of chicken and curry gravy is a nice (large) snack for US$0.50
For a big meal, mutton with several veggies and washed down with a teh tarik or on a hot day, with "kopi ais" (iced coffee).
VT does not cater for Asia in its pricing choices.
In Asia, if you pay more than US$2.50 for a meal, you're crazy.
This restaurant offers take aways for office workers at around US$0.70 each and you can have a sit down meal for a minimum of US$0.50 or a maximum of US$2.00. Well you can pay more but there's nothing that i can remember, over US$2.00
The Big Green Leaf - ("B.G.L."): Indian food - at its best
There is no doubt anymore, this is the best Indian restaraunt in Negeri Sembilan.
They have an amazing lunch time boufet which will cost about US$2.50 per head for all you can eat.
Here, not all food is served on banana leaf and fork and spoon are the norm.
Norm doesn't eat here. It's too expensive. Here is where the businessmen and wealthy people go.
The boufet comprises around 20 different dishes (no beef of course, it's Hindu and no pork either, it's halal) with such a huge variety of chicken, mutton, fish and shellfish, vegetables, curries it's got to be the biggest Indian buffet i've seen.
It's worth a RM5 taxi from the city. Just tell them the "BGL on Jalan Senawang".
Give yourself 2 hours to really enjoy it. You wont find one like this in KL as far as i've seen.
Favorite Dish: If you don't have breakfast, just take a bit of EVERYTHING.
Have an iced water to wash it down, or if the food has been too spicy for you, a hot drink.
Vaas Delight: Indian Food at its Second Best
One of the many up-market restaraunts in Seremban.
Not so up-market anymore; see below.
Here, like ALL Indian restaurants, you eat your food with your right hand. You can ask for a spoon and fork but that's cheating.
The food is served on the traditional banana leaf and you can have a huge meal (not too spicy) with the famous teh tarik for about US$2 per head in air conditioned comfort.
Favorite Dish: Traditional Indian food served on banana leaf followed by teh tarik.
One of the best Indian restaraunts in Seremban.
Since first writing this, the restaurant has changed hands and i have to say it is no longer the best in Seremban.
It's airconditioned, but that's really the only reason to mention it. I'm hoping it gets better because it used to be the best, but right now, the standard has fallen badly
